(Newser) – It’s always fun when Gwyneth Paltrow gives an interview: This time around she explains why cheating on your spouse isn’t so bad. “I am a great romantic—but I also think you can be a romantic and a realist,” she tells the Telegraph. “Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extramarital affairs.”

“It's like we're flawed—we’re human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge,” continues Paltrow, who has been married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for almost eight years. “That's their problem, but I really think that the more I live my life, the more I learn not to judge people for what they do. I think we're all trying our best, but life is complicated.” Even though she was quick to note that she herself has “a very nice husband,” we have to mention that just last month Paltrow was admitting that marriage isn’t all rosy.
